No bolts for Marines during inauguration!

“Didn't know the Marines had to take the bolts out of their rifles for the Inaugural,” an email forwarded to Gun Rights Examiner from a United States Marine Corps source observed. “Wonder if someone can explain why [they] would be marching in the inaugural parade with no bolts in their rifles!”
The email linked to a YouTube video of the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade, embedded in this column, featuring Bravo Company Marines from the Marine Barracks Washington. Sure enough, the observation in the email is confirmed by watching the video, with screen shots provided in the photo and slide show accompanying this article.
Wow.

Just fuckin' wow.

  1. Looks like Zero found a new way to tell the troops what he thinks of them. Generally it's only in 3rd world shit holes that you see rulers scared of the troops.

    1. Always been this way, I served under Reagan and was on a colorguard for Memorial Day event with POTUS, no bolt.

      Nothing to see here folks, lets move along.

  3. Obama POTUS fears his Marines and Bubba this is Eighth and I the very best of the Corps security forces and Honor Guard. This administration is showing us they feel fear and guilt for what they are planning to do to America. "The guilty man flees when no man pursues."
    This tells me all I need to know about Obama and gives me hope for the military siding with the people and the constitution.
    Our leaders fear not only Law abiding Citizens with guns they also fear their own military with guns even during a full blown ceremony even during an inauguration.
    The asshole Hollywood elite, liberal leftist and socialist democrats fear us..........that's good, because they know what will happen if they push us too hard.
    Obama and Hillary no doubt remember too well what happened to gaddaffy and feel that bayonet nuzzling by their sphincters.
    They fear us! How cool is that?

  4. I recall my outfit was visited by POTUS Nixon and the Marines were carrying weapons with bolts in, and there were alleged two Marines as snipers who had full mags to protect Nixon.
    My,my,my how things do change.
    I wonder do Obama trust his pilots on Marine one and Air force one?

    1. i wouldn't doubt that HE DOES NOT trust his Marine pilots. i wouldn't be surprised if he has them switched out with Secret Service bubbas....think about it. have you seen a photo of a Marine pilot flying one of Obama's helicopters lately???

  5. Obama must be worried by "God, Corps, Country" credo because he doesn't believe in any of them!

  6. Wasn't there something similar some years ago in a visit to Afg compared to that of HRH Charles of England?

  7. C'mon guys.

    No President gets to choose how the Secret Service provides protection nor do they have the opportunity of 'reviewing' those decisions.

    That decision was made by some fairly high-up bureaucrat.

    Is it a sad statement about how some gov't asshole view the Armed Forces? Yes.

    Was it the President's call? No

    1. I suppose similar can be said of thousand decisions in National Socialist Germany or Stalinist Soviet Union.
